Our Refuge

Hey everybody!  It's finally Friday, and that means we'll be partying over in the Verve forum tonight at 8PM Eastern!  I'm so excited to reveal the new sets and chat with all my Verve-alicious friends!  Stop by for a little while, or stay for the whole shebang... whatever fits your schedule.  With 10 reveals (8 new sets, a free set and a plain jane) things are sure to be hopping!

If you're hoping to win a little Verve, deadline for comments on our New Release Spotlights as well as entries for the Anni-VERVE-sary sketch challenges are due by 6PM ET tonight (8/20).  Okay, enough with the announcements, let's get to some eye candy...

My card for today features the plain jane from this release, Psalm 46:1, the frame and an accent from Fabulous You and the small open flower from Great Friend  Just a regular hodgepodge of sets - you know me and my mixing and matching!  :)  I started by stamping the frame in black on kraft cardstock, then matting with black cardstock and using a 1/4" corner rounder.  The Psalm 46:1 verse, "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble." is embossed in white inside the stamped frame, then I stamped the Great Friend  flower in black on white cardstock and lightly shaded with Copic markers to match the little prima flower center.  The pinstripe paper is from the Neutrals Patterns by SU! and I stamped the coordinating accent from Fabulous You on either side to draw the eye into the verse.

I pulled out a little blush blossom and embossed it with a new Sizzix embossing folder, then added a new EK Success border punch to the top and some lace to the bottom, finishing off with some pearl accents.  Okay, I've still got miles to go before I sleep, so I'm signing off.  Hope to see you at the release tonight!  :)
